Title: Better Faster Prettier Composites Workshop

Thursday, September 22, 2022

The Westin Nova Scotian Hotel Halifax

8:00 am – 4:00 pm (Registration Starting at 7:30 am)

Location:  Westin Nova Scotia Hotel, 1181 Hollis St, Halifax, NS B3H 2P6

Harbour Room, Main Lobby Behind Front Desk

Synopsis: Join Dr. Clark to experience a unique approach to modern resin dentistry.  Participants will perform injection molding to create ideal margins, rounded emergence profiles, and mirror smooth restorations in 2 Anterior exercises, Deep Anterior Caries and Black Triangles, and 1 Class II exercise.  Participants will also prepare and injection mold fill modern class II (Clark Class II non-retentive infinity edge) using realistic soft tissue dentoforms, Bioclear Matrices, heated 3M flowable and paste composites. Clinical tips for modern instruments will be shared.  Dr. Clark’s recently coauthored textbook “Contemporary Cavity Preparations” will set the stage for this important class.

Posterior tooth preparations have not been reinvented from the 1890 G V Black models.  Those preps have no place today in composite dentistry. Direct composites are underappreciated in today’s world of implants and computer-assisted ceramics.  Yet composite can be the least invasive, most natural and wonderfully esthetic of all restorations.

Participants please bring your Loupes to the course. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn and perform the 3 new steps to achieve rock solid posterior composite contacts.
  2. Receive an update and hands on evaluation of modern matrices, wedges and separators.
  3. Learn how to best combine flowable and liquefied paste and paste composites and what is the injection molding technique.
  4. Discuss solutions to avoid the most common mistakes that lead to less than satisfactory results when performing anterior composites.
  5. Discover heated composite.

He founded the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry, creates curriculum for dental schools, and has lectured in 25 countries. He developed the Bioclear Matrix System for placement of biologically appropriate, esthetically pleasing direct composite restorations for facilitating Injection Molding of the Clark Class I and Class II preparations, diastema closure and black triangle elimination combined with papilla regeneration. The Clark Class I and Clark Class II preparations and restorations are now being evaluated in in vivo and in vitro studies.  He owns several patents. He published the first guide to dentinal and enamel cracks based on clinical microscope dentistry (16X magnification).  Dr. Clark is a 1986 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
